Why Jahabar is like a cat on a hot tin roof

The truth is, The Malaysian Insight has a mole lurking within its ranks and it was this mole who leaked the information to both JMM and MCMC. So it was not MCMC who leaked the information to JMM but a deep throat within The Malaysian Insight who did so. And the reason the mole or deep throat did this is because they are not too happy regarding the fact that The Malaysian Insight is receiving dirty money from dodgy sources.

THE CORRIDORS OF POWER

Amongst Tun Muhammad Ghazali Shafie’s famous sayings is ‘the silence is deafening’. And in The Malaysian Insight’s case this is certainly true. By making a police report alleging that there is a leak in the statement he made, Jahabar Sadiq, the editor of The Malaysian Insight more or less admitted that what was leaked is true. And in spite of this ‘confession’, there is total silence from the ranks of the Pakatan Harapan people.

Incidentally, for the younger generation who may not know who Ghazali Shafie is, he was the person who tried to prevent Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad from becoming Prime Minister because, as Tunku Abdul Rahman said, the day Mahathir becomes Prime Minister will be the beginning of the end for Malaysia. Corruption, abuse of power and racism will become dominant and will emerge as the new Malaysian culture. The Tunku knew what he was talking about, as history has now proven.

Anyway, the silence can be said to be deafening because the silence says more than any number of words could. If this was not The Malaysian Insight, by now Lim Kit Siang, Lim Guan Eng, Tony Pua, Rafizi Ramli, and all the usual Pakatan Harapan chorus girls would be singing and dancing on stage calling for transparency, accountability, a thorough investigation, a special task force to be set up, and maybe even a Royal Commission of Inquiry to be held to look into the allegation that The Malaysian Insight received millions from unknown sources, and in cash.

The thing is, Jahabar made a police report alleging that the statement he made to the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission or MCMC was leaked. This was what The Star reported last week:

The chief executive officer and editor of The Malaysian Insight (TMI) claims that a statement given to the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) has been leaked. Jahabar Sadiq lodged a police report over the alleged leak at the Sri Hartamas police station on Friday morning (Dec 15).

This came after he discovered that his statement was reported in the Malaysian Gazette on Thursday (Dec 14), quoting non-governmental organisation Jaringan Melayu Malaysia (JMM) president Datuk Azwanddin Hamzah. Jahabar claimed that Azwanddin had leaked and twisted several facts he made in his statement to MCMC.

The truth is, The Malaysian Insight has a mole lurking within its ranks and it was this mole who leaked the information to both JMM and MCMC. So it was not MCMC who leaked the information to JMM but a deep throat within The Malaysian Insight who did so. And the reason the mole or deep throat did this is because they are not too happy regarding the fact that The Malaysian Insight is receiving dirty money from dodgy sources.

Not everyone does not care about the source of their money. Muslims believe that whatever you earn and which you feed your family becomes ‘darah daging’. So, if the money is tainted then your family’s darah daging also becomes tainted. That is how true Muslims see things although so-called ‘liberal’ Muslims do not care and will say money is money, never mind where it comes from.

The issue is, if the money is legitimate why does it need to be transacted in cash and why to Jahabar personally and not to The Malaysian Insight in a legal and transparent manner? You do ‘under-the-table’ cash transactions only if you want to hide the transaction and not leave a paper trail. Legal and legitimate transactions can be done openly through the banks.
